Weinberg Rhapsody on Moldavian Themes
Szymanowski Violin Concerto No1
Panufnik Sinfonia Sacra (Symphony No3)
Thomas Søndergård Conductor
Nicola Benedetti Violin
Thomas Søndergård, Nicola Benedetti and the RSNO – the perfect partnership to begin our spring Digital Season! Polish master Karol Szymanowski’s dazzling First Violin Concerto is a piece close to Nicola’s heart and is the spectacular centrepiece in this celebration of the music of Poland – from the flamboyant dance tunes of Mieczyslaw Weinberg to the heartfelt Sinfonia Sacra by Andrzej Panufnik, the great Polish composer whose music is as passionate as it is powerful.
